The darkness of the Passion and the brightness of the Resurrection are metaphors of the dualistic principle of creation that permeate all cultures: from Yin & Yang to the wheel of Fortuna. Light and shadow are interdependent, are one. In orchestral and choral works this principle is made emotionally comprehensible, which can be particularly focused in the Christian world view by the two poles Good Friday and Easter.
